Snowpiercer (2013)


Directed by Bong Joon Ho

2013 • R • English • 126 min.

Before he struck Oscar gold with his excellent Parasite, director Bong Joon Ho made Snowpiercer. Both are class warfare fables where the warfare part is literal. In this one, that warfare takes place on a post-apocalyptic super-train, with combatants fighting their way from the cars in the back (where the lower classes are trapped) to the cars in the front (where the rich and powerful live in luxury). (Snowpiercer is a movie unafraid to wear its subtext on its sleeve.)

Cast: Chris Evans, Jamie Bell, Tilda Swinton
